I think everyone enjoys getting to peek into other designers scraprooms, right? It's fun to see how others store and organize the same types of products and tools that so many of us have. And while many of us have totally different ways of setting up our spaces, or have totally different types of spaces that we're working with, you never know when you'll see a new way of storing or organizing products that you can incorporate into your own space.
Scraproom Tour, by Wendy Antenucci.
Welcome to my scrap space! We recently moved and my lovely room became a space. I did a lot of purging to get all of my stuff into my space and now I am in love! My space is in the loft that overlooks our family room and kitchen allowing me to keep tabs on everything that is going on. My scrappy area shares the space with the Wii TV and with an extra bed so I do have to keep things somewhat neat (most of the time).
My scrappy style and my space hold a lot in common - I LOVE white space! I try to keep everything neatly put away and purged so that I can think and actually enjoy the scrapping process. I do definitely make a mess while creating, but then I clean things up as soon as possible. The best place I found to store my scrappy goodies are in the closet! I was able to place a few of the sterlite carts stacked and a bookcase into my closet which holds the bulk of my stash.
I have journaling pieces in one drawer, paints in another, stickles/inks in another, punches in another, border punches in yet another. In the other set of drawers I keep kits I am working with right now, layouts that haven't been put away yet, products from other manufactures that I am enjoying working with.
My bookcase is a wire piece from Home Depot; it holds my paper from the different Design Teams I am on, my box of photos, and tools.
I just bought a new piece from IKEA, it is probably my favorite! You can see the one drawer holds a lot of my Bella embellishments/stickers and here is another drawer with my washi tape collection.
I have my most used things in this cabinet - ink pads, newest embellishments, sewing templates, needles, thread and the list goes on.
I have 2 bookcases that hold up my desktop and they are filled with items I use constantly - mists, dies, stamps, tapes, pens, etc. The last picture is of my work area, I have a box (from Target where most of my items came from) that holds my most loved tools and pens, they are right in front of me when I create. I always put these items back because I can't stand spending time searching for my scissors or ruler when I am on a scrappy kick. My hubby also built a box for my PL pieces - it resembles an old tape box, but he built it to fit what I wanted to store!
To make my area my happy spot, I hang my completed layouts on the wall - these are my favorites that just make me happy (and my kids love to see themselves) and remind me why I scrap. Thanks for joining me in my scrap space; I hope it has made you as happy as it makes me!
